What’s Fashionable

Posted in Clothes, Culture with tags , on January 14, 2010 by WorldNYC

What’s behind the sagging pants. Obscene and disrespectful to many but is it a fad that will FADE away or/and is it fashionable style statement that’s here to stay?

A style that started in the inner cities of the US and glamorized in magazines, emulated in music videos, and on television.  The truth is the sagging pants style stems from the inside of jails sand prisons where belts aren’t allowed.  Just like many of the black cultural marks present such as slang, and other fashionable styles of Hip Hop we see the sagging, baggy trousers have the been around for a while.

Dr. Darryl Townes, a licensed psychologist in with a practice in Savannah, Georgia says that he has discussed this topic of sagging pants with several colleagues from various states through his affiliation with the Association of Black Psychologists. “[The] style has been transformed into something that represents counter-culture,” says Dr. Townes. “It’s in our communities, it’s in the Hip-Hop culture.”

Along with a sense of counter-cultural affiliations, Dr. Townes says that sagging pants have the potential to send both homoerotic and homophobic signals. “It’s almost like the young men are daring people to look at their behinds or to take their manhood.”

So pull THEM UP!!   Because it’s Whack and looks Dirty.
